Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive surgery is performed to restore the form and function of the face, head and neck. 

Trauma, tumors, scars, infection or congenital anomalies such as cleft lip or cleft palate can affect the appearance and normal functioning of surrounding structures such as the eye, ear, nose, mouth, cheek, scalp and neck.  Reconstructive surgery is highly individualized and may require several stages to obtain the most optimal result.  

Restoring the appearance and function through reconstructive surgery can improve your self-esteem and confidence.
